Sherman Tan Studio - Full Day Wedding Photography in Melbourne
The wedding you're planning is perhaps the most significant event in your life so far. It's important to take your time and enjoy the party. This is why I stand out as one of the few photographers who can provide comprehensive coverage for an entire day. All the way from the time you're pumping your fists on the main stage in the morning till the time you're getting ready for bed. Somewhere between 15 and 18 hours. I'll be by your side no matter what happens.
This Is Your Biggest Celebration. And You Deserve to Remember It All.
Groom Getting Ready
This is typically a part of the wedding day where the bride is not meant to see before the ceremony. Your man’s nervousness when he is rehearsing his vows, what he gets up to with his mates, and more importantly, his many tries to get his tie at just the right length, in other words, the length he goes to just to look better than his ‘Sunday best’, just for you.
Bride Getting Ready
This is the first part of the Bride's version of events. Similarly, the Groom will not see this prior to the wedding. In addition to showing their excitement for you, the bridesmaids will be giving you last-minute tips on how to avoid falling down the aisle. This time with your parents marks your final days of freedom before you marry and start a new chapter in your life. I'll be there to capture you in your wedding gown and all of the special moments that surround them. I'll also take wonderful photos of you in that gorgeous gown.
This is the time everyone has been anticipating. All the guests have arrived, and the room is filled with the fragrance of fresh flowers. You and your father start to make your way down the aisle as the music begins to play. Because he hasn't seen you in your wedding dress before, your groom will have to fight the urge to drop his jaw. Feelings are running high. I'll be there to make sure you don't miss a thing while you're admiring your significant other.
Natural, Candid Moments
The Raw, Unguarded, Genuine You.
These are the most challenging types of photos to take, and most photographers would agree. That's why they're so invaluable and rare.
Such moments can occur at any time and in any place, and they frequently pass so fast that you don't have time to enjoy them before they're gone. Knowing where the action will occur takes a great deal of focus, awareness, and expertise. The good news is that I really enjoy these. When it comes to sensing the world around me, I put my faith in my intuition. You'll notice in my photos that I'm always on the lookout for spontaneous moments of joy, such as guffawing, grinning cheekily, or discreetly dabbing away tears. Because of the happiness your wedding will bring to others, I hope you'll be able to keep those memories with you always.
We'll schedule time during the day for you to take some killer pictures all over town. This can take place on the same day as the ceremony, or on a different day if that works better with your schedule. (see pre-wedding). You should get these professionally printed and framed or used as a double spread in your wedding album. You can have it at the same place as the wedding with close friends and family or choose a different place for a more private session with only the bridal party. It's just one more gesture of gratitude and remembrance towards those who shared in the joy of the occasion with you. One that is more relaxed and lighthearted, reflecting your true nature, is more appealing to me. Awkward silence will be replaced with a barrage of laughs, smiles, advice, and poor jokes. The vast majority of the time, you will be able to focus on each other and forget that I even exist.
Once the speeches are through, it's time to break bread together. Ceremony events include the father-daughter dance, first-duet dance, speeches, entertainment, cake cutting, and bouquet toss.
I'll be there to help you remember the wonderful times and look your best no matter what kind of celebration you have.
The Gorgeous Lady in Red Is Jacqui.
She's an incredible baker, a foodie with a passion, a recently licenced architect, and my trusty assistant; in short, she's my overqualified better half and she goes by the name Jackie. She is a one-stop-shop for all your beauty and fashion needs, and she can even recommend some delicious restaurants in Melbourne.
The Other Person Placed the Camera on a Timer and Ran for the Shot.…That’s Me.
Well, hello there! Hi, my name is Sherman, and I'm so sorry to have gotten in the way of such a breathtaking panorama.
I am a quiet, reserved person who finds that these qualities actually help me succeed in my chosen field. I spent my career as an architectural designer, which involved a lot of visual storytelling. For me, a photograph is a time capsule that contains an entire narrative, preserving those moments in a way that words can't.
My goal is simple.
I hope that looking at your photos will bring back happy memories and make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
They Call Me a Photographer.
But I like to think of myself more as a storyteller. I'd love to meet you, brighten your day, and hear your life story. You should never forget how you felt today.
